No Widespread Evidence of Fraud?

Over on the Book of Face someone linked to this report of the forensic examination of the Dominion voting machines in Antrim County, Michigan.  Pullquote:

We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results. The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud. Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified.

(Bold my emphasis.)  In this videoFulton County, GA, Elections Director Richard Barron reported that they had scanned 113,130 votes, and adjudicated 106,000 – almost 94% of the votes cast. It would appear that the Dominion machine “problem” was not limited to Antrim county, Michigan. (Is it a “bug” when it’s been designed to do that, or a “feature”?)

Where else did this occur?  I am reliably informed that there is “no evidence” of “widespread election fraud.”  Apparently because no one was willing to allow anyone to look, or publicize it when some did.  Goes against The Narrative™ you see.

I’m Moving

In today’s Progressive environment of inclusivity and civility, I no longer feel comfortable that Google will continue to ignore this blog.  I am therefore migrating off of Blogger to a privately hosted server.  This requires moving to WordPress.  The translation is not very clean.  A LOT of formatting problems, and I still haven’t figured out how to export the Disqus comments from here to there.

The site needs a LOT of work, but it’s up at http://smallestminority.org.  I have no plan to delete this blog, I’m just going to start posting over there (and probably copy over here for a bit.)

Quora question: “Why is the United States so messed up right now in 2021?”

My answer:

100+ years of “public education” has produced the electorate we have today. Too many people can’t reason, have no coherent philosophy, have no knowledge of actual history (only “social justice” history), have been taught that Western Civilization is the root of all evil in the world, etc.

It started in the very early 1900’s, driven by the wealthy industrialists to set up a system that would produce a two-tiered output – the actually educated sons & daughters of the elite who would be managers, and the people who would be working in their factories and buying the resultant products. All the “Progressives” were in favor of it. They wanted obedient, unquestioning workers who could read, write, and do math, but not think for themselves.

Shortly afterward the “Progressives” suborned the system to create ever-greater numbers of “Social Justice Warriors,” culminating in what we have today. After more than five generations the population consists of essentially four groups – those that despite being in the public system still managed to get an education, those who were privately educated, those who the education system didn’t radicalize but instead made numb, and the radicals. (Note: a lot of the radicalized went back into the education system as teachers and administrators in a positive feedback loop.)

The private system has always been oriented towards the elites. The majority of the nation, I think, are the numb. Those who educated themselves are a minority and the radicals are too, but they – being radical – have influence far beyond their mere numbers.

“Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.” – H.G. Wells, 1920

“Give me a child for his first seven years and I’ll give you the man.” – Quote attributed to the Jesuits

“All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth.” – Aristotle

“A recently reprinted memoir by Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) has footnotes explaining what words like ‘arraigned,’ ‘curried’ and ‘exculpate’ meant, and explaining who Job was. In other words, this man who was born a slave and never went to school educated himself to the point where his words now have to be explained to today’s expensively under-educated generation.

“There is really nothing very mysterious about why our public schools are failures. When you select the poorest quality college students to be public school teachers, give them iron-clad tenure, a captive audience, and pay them according to seniority rather than performance, why should the results be surprising?

“Ours may become the first civilization destroyed, not by the power of our enemies, but by the ignorance of our teachers and the dangerous nonsense they are teaching our children. In an age of artificial intelligence, they are creating artificial stupidity.

“In a democracy, we have always had to worry about the ignorance of the uneducated. Today we have to worry about the ignorance of people with college degrees.” – Thomas Sowell

“It is only from a special point of view that ‘education’ is a failure. As to its own purposes, it is an unqualified success. One of its purposes is to serve as a massive tax-supported jobs program for legions of not especially able or talented people. As social programs go, it’s a good one. The pay isn’t high, but the risk is low, the standards are lenient, entry is easy, and job security is pretty good…in fact, the system is perfect, except for one little detail. We must find a way to get the children out of it.”—Richard Mitchell, the Underground Grammarian.

Quote of the Day – Seen @ Facebook

You’ll love this.

I’m in my masters class for education (already know where this is going) and Paulo Freire and Myles Horton are mainstays for this class with their book “We make the Road by Walking.” Here is a quote by Freire “Education is not neutral and that by claiming to be neutral, we are technically siding with the powerful.” 

Paulo Friere is best known for his book “Pedagogy of the Oppressed” and is the spiritual founder of “Critical Pedagogy,” which is to education what “critical race theory” is to racial healing.  Miles Horton is known for his textbook “Education for Social Change.”  As opposed to “education to learn how to read, write, do math, understand science, and think for yourself.”

American ThinkerAre the End Times Near?

Pullquote:

I believed, and still believe, that every manifestation, every symptom of the sickness of our time, the self-destructive corruption, the lies and hypocrisies and weakness of spirit, the coordinated attack on the institutions and traditions that have sustained Judeo-Christian civilization, the digital surveillance project of billionaire Globaliers — these must be resisted and fought, for there is no other choice but feckless and dishonorable surrender.

But at the same time, we need to be realistic. We are not doomsayers to acknowledge that civilizations fall of necessity, disappear or are subsumed into new syncretic entities, and that ours is no different. The conclusion is foregone, but not yet. In Michael Walsh’s terms from his new book Last Stands, manly virtue fights to the foreordained end. The issue is this: We cannot deter, but we can defer.

That’s all I’ve been trying to do – postpone and hopefully soften the landing when the inevitable crash does come.  No way to tell until it happens, but it’s not looking good right now.
